Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado

The Lutetia building is home to FAAP´s artistic residence program for Brazilian and foreign artists, overseas or outside São Paulo State, active in the arts, communication, or architecture. Selected artists spend a number of months in one of the ten large studios in the building, developing their artistic projects and conveying their experiences and knowledge to students and professors at the foundation.


Artists are expected to lead workshops or classes.

Accommodation Information

10 studio units (69m2 or 79m2) fully refurbished, with private facilities. Lutetia Building housekeeping staff will clean the studios once a week following a schedule established by FAAP and posted in each area.


FAAP residency programme takes place in the Lutetia building, restored as part of the process of rehabilitating the former glamour of downtown São Paulo. The building is located in Praça do Patriarca, which was once the heart of what is known as the Old City Center.
